Best of the Broke: October
We can’t believe it’s already almost November. At this rate, before you know it, we’ll all be...dead. Kidding. Kinda. In any case, we saved you a ton of money this month, money you will now feel obligated to spend on holiday gifts, holiday dresses, holiday parties, and -- if you’re lucky -- actual holidays. We’ll help you with all of that in coming weeks, but first, let’s take a look back at October:
We didn’t mean to stress you out just now with talk of holiday spending and...death. However, we can offer you a remedy -- tonight is our big Study Break event with Intern Queen and Spaphile at the Aveda Institute. Expect free spa & beauty treatments, an amazing internship panel, gift bags for the first 100 people through the door, and more. RSVP here.
This month, in keeping with the morbid theme we’ve got going, we asked Kat Odell to give us a list of the top 5 pastas to splurge on in LA before you die.
We also interviewed all kinds of celebs -- Maria Menounos gave us her budget beauty secrets, Christian Siriano reminisced on his days as a broke guy, and artist Parvez Taj (a celebrity to us -- swoon!) gave us an insider look at his studio and what it takes to create art.
Speaking of celebs, our BGG Stylist showed us how to rock fall’s kimono trend like Nicole Richie, without needing the starlet’s salary. Meanwhile, Kristen from Glitter ‘N Glue showed us how to mimic McQueen with a little DIY for Halloween.
Being that you are all clearly starf*ckers, we thought you might like our ‘Classic Hollywood Day Out’ itinerary. We were right -- you loved it.
However, we didn’t just help you stalk celebs this month. We also gave you a list of the top 5 bars in town for watching men or, er, sports. And speaking of manly things, this month we showed our Hello Giggles audience how to throw a beer-tasting party.
Since we can’t have you running around town stalking hotties while looking like a schlub, we also managed to get you 20% off stylist services at Warren-Tricomi.
And finally -- because we know what it’s like to live without furniture -- we decided to give away an $888 couch from Apt2b.com. You can still enter to win the couch through the end of the month, which, along with death, is fast approaching. We suggest you hurry.
